Book Summary:
Zoë Sorensson yearns to come into her powers as the only female dragon shifter. But being part of two worlds is more complicated than she expected. It’s bad enough that she’s the target of the Mages’ plan to eliminate all shifters—she also has to hide her true nature from her best friend Megan, a human. For her sixteenth birthday, all Zoë wants is one normal day, including a tattoo and a chance to see hot rocker Jared.

Instead, the Pyr throw her a birthday party but ban Megan from attendance, putting Zoë in a tight spot. Things get even worse when Zoe is invited to the popular kids’ Halloween party and Megan’s left out. Zoë knows the party is a trap laid by the host, an apprentice Mage. When Megan gets a last-minute invite, Zoë must save the day—and her best friend—without revealing her fire-breathing secrets . . .

Quick Thoughts:
Winging It by Deborah Cooke is the fun, quickly paced second installment of the Dragon Diaries series. I love how fast paced this series is- it is impossible to stop flipping the pages. If you haven't read the first book in this series, you should. But if you haven't, don't worry because Cooke smoothly introduces the story to new readers and those that need a recap (like myself) without it ever feeling redundant. 

Though I really enjoyed Zoe's character in Flying Blind, she is much easier to relate to in Winging It. Her character has evolved and is extremely likeable. I love that she has typical teenage problems to cope with as well as her Wyvern problems. She has a boy that is sending mixed messages and parents with relationship issues as well. Who couldn't relate to that? It is entertaining to watch her try to figure it all out.

Highly recommend this series to anyone that loves action packed paranormal young adult. It is full of exciting revelations, drama and romance. Can't wait until the third installment, Blazing the Trail,  releases next year!
